Diablo® III

My first legendary drop!!!

After 68+ hours gameplay time, my first legendary drop in act 1 inferno. finally. I had the 5 stack of valor as well. How long did it take you guys to get your first legendary drop?

Not long, got one on the Butcher in Act I Normal, and two more from random mobs in Act II Normal. So three within the first ~15 hours of play or so. Barely any MF on my character either ... just the luck of the draw I suppose.

FWIW only one of those was useful to me. One I sold on the AH for some measly sum and the other I think I actually salvaged (ye gods!)

Legendary is random. You can even get it the first time you play if lucky. I haven't found one yet. :X

No you don't NEED MF, but having MF will make it more likely to get magic/rare/legendaries. Nothing is guaranteed though ... you just have relatively more chance to get legendaries the higher your MF is.

I'm only in hell act 2 and I got 2 legendary drops with a barbain

One was a staff (Autums call) which was useless for the barbain so I savlaged it

And the other was a shield Centruion which I am still using..

However Legenary drops are not alway useful --at the end of the day its the stats on the item that count.. a rare item with a few good stats is better that a legenardy item with crap random stats

I'm about 110 hours in and I usually farm Act 1 Inferno, Act 4 Hell, and some places at Act 4 Inferno, and I have yet to see a single legendary drop.

So as far as I'm concerned, they don't drop. Anyone who says they found one is just lying and got it from the AH, and they were put there by Blizzard.

I got a useless legendary sword in Act 3 of nightmare. It has really low DPS and the only interesting stat is 25% chance of poison. It was worse than most of the magic items I was finding at the time. I need to auction the stupid thing... I'm sure someone will buy it just because it's legendary.

Yesterday I got a great legendary shield in Act 2 of hell. I can see it staying with me until I get to inferno.

Took me maybe 66 hours to get my first one.. then somehow I got 2 legendaries in the same day (one of them was from the treasure goblin, act 4 hell I think). Sold them on AH for 100k each (items weren't great).

Im not even looking forward for a Legendary.. I want them blues with 1k DPS thank you.

Seriously though, after maxing my Monk and reaching Inferno, Reaching Nightmare on my DH.. I NEVER got any Legendary.. so yeah.

Then my brother let me play his Wizard and 5 mins in farming for gold.. I found a Legendary.. and he sold it for 100k.. so.. yeah.

No legendary until last night, 2 in the same run Act 1 Inferno. 2H mace lvl 51 and Lidless Shield.

Let's say an item has a 0.004% chance of dropping. If you have 100% MF, from my understanding, the drop chance is not 0.008%.

The % increases the drop rate by the % amount.
